Everest Base Camp trek takes you to the lap of the highest mountain range and provides a panoramic view of surrounding mountains like Nuptse, Khumbu, Pumori, Ama Dablam, and more. Walking from the challenging trails into elegant geographies with rich cultures and traditions of the people residing in the Khumbu region is the highlight of the entire trek. One of the most enticing treks in the geographically diverse land of Nepal, the Everest Base Camp trek offers a thirst-quenching walk to all nature lovers and travel enthusiasts. 
The Everest Base Camp trek begins from the wonderful Lukla and takes around 13 to 15 days for completion.
